More Birds

24 May

I am really enjoying all of the wild birds this spring.  I have already overloaded you with bird pictures, but I just can’t stop taking more pictures.  So…

I need to wash my windows, but I couldn’t resist sharing him with his big maple seed.

I can’t believe all the Baltimore orioles I’ve had.

The northern flicker landed in the tree right by me and then took off again.

There was a pair of Eastern kingbirds.

The red-bellied woodpecker was a long ways off, but I just love them.

I do love my domestic birds too.  Mr. Peacock is still dancing for everyone, and they still don’t appreciate him.

The girls are doing okay in the smaller greenhouse, but I really need to start getting their building cleaned out and the pen repaired.

As much as she enjoys a clean bath, I don’t know why she keeps throwing all the junk in her pool.

I am ready to be done teaching for the summer.

Looking Like Summer

I love this time of year.  Everything is turning green and there’s wildlife to photograph and happy goats and llamas on pasture.

Sorry to overload with this last subject, but I’ve never seen such an agreeable snake before.

Here’s to another great weekend!

Monday Leftovers

16 May

I’ve been playing with the camera, and I have a lot of pictures I haven’t shared because it’s also been really busy.  So today is all leftovers!

This bobolink must be new because he’s awfully shy.
